A former Power Rangers star has been jailed for six years for killing his roommate with a sword.

Ricardo Medina was sentenced on Thursday after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter, a Los Angeles Superior Court spokeswoman confirmed.

The 38-year-actor stabbed Josh Sutter, 36, multiple times after an argument about Medina's girlfriend turned physical, according to prosecutors.

Medina admitted using a sword in the killing, which happened on January 31 2015, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said.
